The aim at Wavendon Gate School is that all children will achieve their full potential both academically and socially.
Quality first teaching is paramount to ensure we fulfil this aim for our children. For some children, however, it is necessary to provide additional support and/or resources to enable them to achieve their targets in school and to reach their full potential. This information has been provided to answer questions you may have about the Special Educational Needs (SEN) support that is being provided to help your child in school.
Name of SENCO: Ms Kerry Jarman
To contact Ms Jarman please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01908 586394 and ask for the SENCo.
Please see below for a full break down of some of the terms that may be used in relation to Special Educational Needs. We hope this helps you with any confusion when discussing or understanding the needs of your child.
